I love the keycaps, But it would be better with a less gamer font or to make the blank!
~the magic world of aftermarket keycaps~
Yes, of course, but it's a shame they had to go down that path with these caps. I liked the typeface initially as nicely bold, until I saw the close up of the broken 'b,' and I assume 'd' is similar. Loathsome style, undeserving of this board IMHO.
It's not paticullarly gamery and kinda reminds me of the default Pok3r RGB caps. I would still probably switch them out for some nice DSA caps though.
The font on the caps looks very similar to that used on the PBT/POM caps on my backlit Ducky One and on a set of caps I've ordered from Massdrop in the past. I am not a materials engineer, but I believe the font is designed that way to ensure that all of the area that is supposed to be the "foreground" color actually gets filled in.
I don't mind it personally; I actually think it fits the style of this board better than the Ducky One, but I'm okay with it on there anyway.
Ah, yes...I loathe backlighting, and by default I guess any caps that are produced with that in mind, because of course without the lighting they are somewhat incomplete.
